Zucchini Patties

I love these zucchini patties. These patties are an excellent way to use up those extra zucchinis that you have and have no clue what to do with. My patties are a bit different because I’m using provolone cheese, but of course if you don’t have provolone you can use mozzarella cheese. These cheesy patties are so delicious and decadent, they’ll become a staple in your home. Once I made these with a cheese mix that I had, mozzarella, provolone, asiago and parmesan and they turned out amazing, so feel free to use whatever your favorite cheese is or whatever you have on hand.

Grate the zucchini in a medium size bowl. In the recipe I say 3 or 4 zucchini, but I ended up using only 2 large ones. Strain as much of the water as you can from them with paper towels.

Add the remaining ingredients to the zucchini.

Now mix everything well, get your hands in there and get dirty. If you find the mixture is too wet, add a bit more flour, especially if you didn’t remove all the water from the zucchini. I actually ended up using half a cup of flour for mine. Your mixture should look like this:

In a medium or large skillet, heat a bit of oil and turn the heat to medium. Take a spoon and drop a tablespoon of the zucchini mixture in the skillet, or use your hands to form a ball then flatten it for a patty.

It will take a few minutes per side, about 3 or 4 minutes, then flip them over and fry on the other side.

Repeat with the remaining zucchini mixture. If you’re not a zucchini fan, I still think you’ll like these, they are so cheesy and just delicious. I love anything with provolone and Parmesan cheese in them.

That’s what I’m having for lunch today. :)

      Hi Terry,
      If you don’t like dill, I would just suggest you leave it out. I’m not sure about the sweet pickle as I’ve never tried it in these patties. Let me know how they turn out. :)

    OMG! I was so excited when I found this recipe that I went to store and bought everything I needed and made it the next day! lol I love zucchini and this looked really easy. Mine turned out really good and tasted better than I imagined them tasting!! If that makes sense! Will definitely be making it again!

    These look awesome! How many does the recipe make? I’m always attending pot lucks and I usually bring the dessert but this very well may be the new “to-do.”Thanks!

    I made these today for lunch and I just wanted to say…..delicious! I used Asian sesame bread crumbs, omitted the dill and added crushed red pepper flakes.

    I’m so glad I stumbled across this website. I’ve made two of the recipes and I loved both of them =)

      Hi Shannon,
      Thank you, I’m glad you liked them. I’ve been making these zucchini patties for a long time now and they are one of my favorites.

    This sounds like a great recipe. Beautiful photos, too. Heck, I think I could eat Pine needles with parmesan and provolone but I won’t.
